Everyone has received a mysterious anonymous message to show up at this exact location. Whatever it is that was promised, threatened, or alluded to in that message, you ended up here anyway.
Sei greeted Virus with a nod and an uncertain smile.
“Good to see you too,” he replied, paused for a while, and then continued,
All right, so Virus probably wasn’t behind this, Sei concluded, for the blonde didn’t seem to have expected him to come here.
“Were you invited to a sleepover here as well..?” Sei asked, wondering who else would be coming, surely they couldn’t be the only ones invited..
“Yeah, I did. I received a message about an hour ago, but it was from an anonymous.” Virus explained. “It’s not like I have anything to do anyway so I came here…although I did think it’s somewhat strange…” He giggled to himself before he stared at Sei and asked, “You received the message too?”
Aoba had been curious just what the sender of the message could want. It seemed to address him directly, as it had mentioned his name after all, but it being anonymous there was no telling what the situation would be. He definitely wasn’t going to make a habit of acting on whims like this.
As soon as he entered, he was a bit more than surprised. Virus and… Sei? What were they doing here? If it weren’t for the strangeness of the situation, he might of at least offered a greeting to them. He glanced around the main area he’d just entered. What was even going on here? “Uh…” A rather palpable feeling of uneasiness had settled in his stomach, and Aoba turned to look behind him. The door was gone. At least, until someone else entered again. He looked back to Sei and Virus with confusion.
“… Long time no see?” Had they sent it to him, or did they get the messages themselves, too? If they wanted him to come, they could have at least asked. He was kind of getting the creeps from this setup.
Before Sei had the time to answer Virus’ question, the door opened again.. It was Aoba. So he had gotten the ‘invitation’ as well..?
Despite the confusing situation, Sei was happy to see his brother again.
”..Aoba,” Sei called out with a smile, and took a step closer to Aoba. Then he realized.. There was no door behind him, only a wall. What was happening here? It was probably another new type of technology.. But whoever wanted them here obviously didn’t want them to leave.
He let his gaze catch Aoba’s eyes, and noticed the uneasiness in them. “..Did you get a message telling you to come here?”
